More Great Torme
Rick Cornell | Reno, Nv USA | 01/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was one of the last vinyl albums I purchased, and I got it after being enthralled by the "Maisonette" album. I'm going off memory, but this is terrific. Mel had totally swinging covers of "Autumn Leaves" and "Day in Day Out" (a tune he often covered and re-covered throughout his career), and the "Fred Astaire Medley" is a reminder of the fact that Astaire and G.Gershwin were kindred spirits back in the '30's. As I recall, Mike Renzi was the pianist on this one, and while he didn't mesh with Torme as well as George Shearing, he nevertheless acquitted himself very well here. Patter-wise, Torme had a bad tendency to be smarmy, but as I recall, his smarminess didn't get in the way of a great performance here. Recommended."
Do Not Buy This CD! The Sound Quality is Very Poor!
David R. Beaudry | Medford, Oregon | 11/08/1999

"This is not competitive! Any of the Concord releases sound much better than this rip-off item. Rhino has a couple of reissues from the 50's and 60s that sound way better than this. A rotten value if ever there was one."
Mel torme at his best

"If you only get one Mel Torme cd, make sure this is the one. Even though this is an older Mel, he sounds incredible. Hard to believe, but he actually got better with age."
